Emailing a scanned document

I scanned a document for the first time and tried to send as an email attachment but get an adobe message saying " Acrobat is unable to connect to your email programme". I have mail accounts with Google and Yahoo. Can you help?

Just attach your scanned document as you would any other image, as a scan is nothing more than a photograph of the document.There is no need to use Adobe. If using Gmail just click on attach file, go to where you have saved your scanned image and click on open.

Magic. Worked first time. I was trying to email from the scanned doc itself by clicking on the "file" tab at the top and then "attach to email" which was when the error message surfaced..

That's great. Thanks.
